Facebook v1.6.0.17 icon missing

BlackBerry 8130 
OS v4.3.0.30

I was previously running Facebook app v1.5 without any problems but installed the upgraded v1.6 build.  I am able to see that it installed in the Applications listing but there is not an icon to select for accessing the application.

 

I have removed and reinstalled (numerous times) and have shown all hidden icons but it is not listed.

 

I have seen postings suggesting that all folders be searched but I am unsure how to do that.  When it's connected via USB, I can only see folders such as pictures, music, ringers, etc.. I do not see anything for downloads or applications.  I have installed BBFileScout and searched for Facebook but it's not found.

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

 

Regards,

Scott

Hello scott_c. There are a few threads already reporting that it may be a bug with 4.2 or 4.3 device software. Many people reported that after updating to 4.5, then the icon appeared. Do you need help in updating your software?

Hi jmrmb80.  Yes, if there is information available on updating the BB software, that would be great.

 

Thank you!

I have Verizon, it doesn't appear that I can do an OTA upgrade (no Wireless Upgrade option in Advanced Options).  I think that the USB option is the path that I should follow?

OK. If your carrier didn't release 4.5 for the 8130 yet just follow these steps and you'll be all set
